The Norwich Y and Chobani a healthy combination
In an effort to provide our members with a healthy snack option – especially those youth members who utilize the YMCA facility – we’ve teamed up with Chobani to... bring you a delicious, all-natural treat.
We ask that you limit yourself to one free Chobani Greek Yogurt a week and don’t forget to place all your trash in the garbage when you’re done refueling!
We hope all of our YMCA members enjoy this protein-packed option. Thank you Chobani for supporting our community YMCA, especially our youth members.
